The start of both NFL and college football seasons are imminent and Fox Sports is giving viewers another option for streaming the action. The network announced today that its Fox Sports Go app is now available on the 4th-gen Apple TV. Yes, you'll need a cable subscription in order to stream events spanning NFL, MLB, UFC, NASCAR, Big 12 and Pac-12 Football, Big East Basketball, FIFA World Cup and UEFA Champions League soccer. Though they aren't specifically listed in the announcement, a MLS and Bundesliga soccer match are part of the weekly lineup during their respective seasons as well.

All of that action is spread across streams from FOX Sports, FS1, FS2, FOX Sports regional networks, FOX College Sports, FOX Deportes and FOX Soccer Plus, hence the pay-TV plan requirement. In fact, your cable plan must include those channels to unlock streaming access. Fox says that the move to Apple TV also adds in some new features that weren't previously available elsewhere. First, you can stream up to four games (or shows) at once thanks to a Multiview Display tool. All of the action is streamed at 60 frames-per-second as well which should improve views of high-speed action across that range of sporting events. Both of those features are items Apple discussed last fall as part of its tvOS software.

Fox Sports Go is also available on Roku, Android TV and Sony smart TVs in addition to apps for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire and Windows. The network has said that Chromecast support is coming this summer, but it has yet to be added to the app.
